    Some toys suck and we regret buying them... Since we're talking top 5 in the other thread, let's name our bottom 5 here.

    Mine are-

    1. Cyb Menasor- Not very good at all, IMO. I wasted my $25. No way around it.

    2. LOC Rachet- Need I explain more? Was returned the next day

    3. RR Bumblebee- OK, it has Revoltech Joints, but there's too much crap in the way to make it worthwhile. Also returned.

    4. Dlx Scorpy... Got it in the 2-pack with Blackout and saved $5... Glad I did, but still... It sucks... The fan-made bot mode is way better than the official one

    5. Anything else don't like was from Christmas '06, so they don't really count... Mainly 2 Revoltechs (I don't know why, I just don't like them)...

    Nothing Really. I've stopped collecting for the most part. Something has to jump out at me these days before I will grab it. I learned my lesson from Armada.

    I don't have a Bottom 5, but the worst fig this year so far for me is Cyb Wing Saber, not too keen on the alt mode, hate the bot mode

    Probably the fragile-ness and the fact the scope is too heavy to pose.

    My bottom five purchasese from this year:

    1. Movie Leader Megatron (don't know, just don't like him)

    2. FAB Prime, Starscream and Ironhide (bought them with the express purpose of displaying them with my movie deluxes and quickly found that while they were the same size Prime was the only one with any incling of articulation... in the process of selling them on eBay).

    3. Titanium 6 inch G1 Ultra Magnus (nice as far as Titaniums go I guess, but he just doesn't live up to his highly undeserved hype and the crazy ass eBay prices... thank God for BBTS or I'd feel like I wasted so much money on him).

    4. The majority of Hasbro Marvel Legends wave 1 (no, seriously, I only bought the entire wave because I wanted the Annihalus BAF. Thankfully, waves 2 and 3 have been better wave 2 was worth buying the whole wave to build Blob and 3 looks like I can happily only buy the three characters I want as I don't have ANY interest in ZOMG let's capitalize off the movie ALIENS!!!!! Brood Queen).

    5. Cybertron Menasor (agreed, he's horrible, and to make matters worse I couldn't find him in the store so I got him through BBTS for $35. I really wasted my money on that guy).

    1: Classics Hotrod. I got him right at the beginning of the year. GAH. What a piece of crap. He nearly turned me off to classics.

    2: Classics Devastator. Not very fun.

    3: Alt Rumble. Also not very fun. But he has potential, so he's not #1 on the list.

    4: Titanium WWI Prime. He turned me off to titanium at the very beginning of this year. Ick.

    5: FAB Prime. GAHH!!!! What a turd. Only FAB I bought.

    1. Robot Heroes Starscream and Mirage- I like starscream, but I think RH Mirage sucks.

    I'll see if there's anything else I'll regret buying by the end of the 2007.

    1. Yamato's VF-0A - GAH! Such a nice looking figure. But flimsy. Fragile. QC problems out the wazoo. Those damn cracking shoulders. GRRR. $160 down the drain. Maybe if I can get some cheap replacement parts it'd be okay, but getting ahold of the supposedly free replacements parts is apparently an expensive and annoying endeaver... :( 

    2. Basically any non-BW Neo/Macross figure I've bought all year. Not that they're bad figures, most are very nice, but they lost my interest as soon as they came out of the package.

    I can only think of one: Movie Bumblebee (not the concept one, the original) and his Godawful Automorph that doesn't work.

    1. Alternator Prime. I just picked it up the other day, took it outta the box, transformed it and.. bleh. For whatever reason, the first thing I wanted to do with it after transforming it was toss it in the trash, not entirely sure why. Might be due to the lame shoulders(big shoulders would be fine, but they look ridiculous at any angle due to the huge gaps) or it could be the poor articulation.

    2. Classics Jetfire. It'd be a cool figure, but something about the guns everywhere just makes it seem cheesy to me.

    3. Titanium Menasor. The one I bought to keep MISB is the one I don't like, since after playing with the figure a bit it just doesn't seem it's worth keeping another MISB.

    4. Wheelie. He came in a mixed lot.

    5. Encore Megatron. Because he's on order and hasn't shipped yet...(GIMME MY MEGS!)

    I didn't think MP Megatron was particularly fragile, just way too fiddly to casually transform with so many pieces that have to line up exactly right.

    Haha, I learned that lesson with Energon!.

    But yes, I've been picky with classics and Movie. It doesn't help that all toys from Classics and the Movie are pretty awesome though. Off the top of my head can't think of any particular figure I dislike... Maybe Cybertron uh.. whats her name, that leader of the speed planet. Her transformation blows.

    Taking the number 1 slot by a mile and a half (or three kilometers) MP Megatron, the BFM (Big Floppy Mess)


    Can't think of any others at the moment. But MP Megs was a huge disappointed. Will update if I come up with anything else.

    Wow, poor Megs. His is truly treasured in my house and has taken his rightful place next to MP-01, MP-02 & MP-03.

    My Bottom 5 are:

    Classics

    Movie Deluxes (except CC BB)

    3" tits

    6" tits

    DVD Prime

    Thank god I was able to unload all those Classics, Movie and Tits at minimal loss and the sale provided me enough for my MP-06 and LDR Brawl preorders.
